In Topic: Bicycle Posers OUT-WANK Harley Biker Posers by a Fucking MILE !

The morning of a regatta with everybody wearing the same "oh so imposing" black Gill, Musto, HLloyd, Zike, and what ever overpriced brand you choose is no different. What is the same is the conversations at every post race/ride party.  Cycling, sailing or what ever floats your boat... blah blah blah I'm so great, i did this, we did that. remember when...   

 

Everybody needs a vice and the gear that fits.   


In Topic: guess what it cost to do a out of town race in a 29' boat?

I've had more fun doing the deliveries in cruise mode than at most of the races where I was heading. Go a week ahead (get a cheap slip on the mainland) and return her home a week or two later.  Maybe even tie in a long weekend of cruising with friends, family and soon to be enemies... That's what I did for CRW before I moved my boat to Charleston permanently.

@echo - I spent a lot of time delivering boats up and down the West coast and to Hawaii as well as worked on ships throughout the Pacific.  I've never done the ICW.  Something about being able to motor along at a leisurely pace, anchoring every night for a couple beers and steak just sounds so appealing to me.  We don't have that on the West Coast (except maybe the inside passage of BC).

 Oh it's awesome. I've been from Mile 1 at Norfolk to Daytona and all points in between. The bridges and shoals South of Swansboro are the only real hassles,  (IMHO) South of Myrtle Beach to Georgetown is the best part.

Where in NC ?  I had 36.7 with a 6' draft and it never held us back. New Bern was my base.

 

Beaufort.


Actually looking a bit harder at that 911 ad, the boat for sale might be a 1986 Pacific Boats built boat, but they show an Ericson built boat in the slip with a dodger and Risky on the stern and an Ericson interior shot. Screwy ad.  

 

I wrote and asked the broker for clarification.

 

 

 

Spent a lot of time going up and down the ICW from Morehead City/Beaufort to the Neuse River.  I would go off shore if I was heading South to avoid the ICW to Wrightsville.  Good luck on your search.
